Since I already have pros and cons of Ampharos earlier
Ampharos
Pros
115 SpA and good Bulk.
Usable ability in Static.
Good movepool in Thunderbolt, Power Gem, Dragon Pulse, Signal Beam, and Volt Switch.
Cons
Bad 55 Base Speed.
Have to trade it into Sun and Moon.

Magnezone
Pros
Nice Ability in Sturdy to guarantee an Attack.
Great SpA at 130 and good Bulk in 70/115/90
Great typing gives it 11 Resistances, 1 immunity and only 3 Weaknesses.
Good STABs in Flash Cannon and Thunderbolt.
Cons
4x weak to Ground.
Only other Coverage is Tri Attack.

I would go with Magnezone for that great typing and better Special Attack, but here are movesets for both.
[email protected] Magnet
Sturdy Ability
- Thunderbolt
- Flash Cannon
- Volt Switch
- Tri-Attack

Ampharos @ Magnet or anything really
Static Ability
-Thunderbolt
-Power Gem
-Dragon Pulse
-Signal Beam/Focus Blast

Definitely Ampharos, because Magnazone has a 4x ground weakness. If you can somehow fix that problem, like giving it an air balloon, then Magnazone has good stats, and OK coverage, so you really could do either.

Magnezone is better because it has lots of resistances and good STAB moves too.

May I have a more in-depth answer as to why.
